Issue 90 of Sarah Marrinan’s American Lifestyle magazine will be delivered to homes between July 11 and July 21, 2018.


Ice cream cones, loud, booming fireworks displays, and dinosaurs–these are among the pillars of childhood interests–and this issue of American Lifestyle magazine honors them all. It opens deliciously with a feature on Lick Honest Ice Creams, a chain of ice cream shops based in Texas. Founders Chad Palmatier and Anthony Sobotik have rooted their business on the principles of locally sourced ingredients and nuanced flavor combinations, including sweet cream and strawberry, persimmon and sage, and cilantro lime. Not wanting to leave anyone out, they also offer three or four vegan flavors, made with a coconut milk base. 

Fireworks by Grucci began in the small town of Bari, Italy. Angelo Lanzetta moved to New York with his son Anthony in 1870 and set up shop there until the business was bought by Anthony’s nephew, Felix Grucci Sr., the company’s namesake, in 1923. Felix grew the company in many ways, including developing the stringless shell, which was a major advancement in safer fireworks technology.  

Dinosaurs have fascinated us for generations–and the Wyoming Dinosaur Center has fostered this fascination for kids, and kids at heart, for decades. For example, its Dig for a Day Program allows guests to put themselves in the shoes of paleontologists, uncovering and preparing fossils. The process is more complicated than most people think, involving location mapping, photographing, and documenting each bone. 

What reminds you of childhood? Perhaps something to ponder over a delicious ice cream cone. As always, it’s a pleasure to send you this magazine.
